DETECTIVES were this afternoon given a further 12 hours to question a 27-year-old Ipswich murder probe suspect.

The man was arrested around 3pm yesterday afternoon in connection with the death of mother-of-two Rosalyn Hunt, 41, whose body was found in Victoria Street, Ipswich, around 11am on Sunday.

Ms Hunt is believed to have died some days prior to the discovery of her body. A post mortem has showed the cause of death was trauma to the body.
